Ways You Can Help

Support the Fund for the Future

The UTAA's Fund for the Future is our annual fundraising campaign and serves as the financial foundation of the Alumni Association. Gifts are allocated by the UTAA's Board of Governors to underwrite over $500,000 in enrichment programs. The Fund for the Future also helps the UTAA meet the growing needs of our alumni base through expanded career services, legislative advocacy and networking opportunities. Consider:

  • A convenient and secure online gift
  • Sending a check with a gift reply form
  • Calling our office (865) 974-6095 to speak with someone about the terms of your gift
  • Creating an endowment to support the program of your choice while honoring a family member or loved one.
  • A planned gift—an estate gift, a charitable remainder trust, an annuity or other form of mutually beneficial financial instrument to create an endowment honoring a spouse, family member or loved one. If you have questions about a planned gift, please contact at

If you have questions about giving, please contact Erick Weber at or at (865) 974-6095.
